    It would be advisable to change the gearbox but it would work regardless as there both small block engines and you would need the ecu and transponder

    might be better to sell the 1.4 and buy a 1.6. will be cheaper to insure too

    depends what state the 1.4 is in.. if its broken and the 1.6 is easy to get hold of nice and cheap then could be better cost wise.

    to insure a my coupe with a 2.ltr turbo conversion + remap and work up to 300bhp .. fully comp was quoted at around £300 more than what i paid on the 1.8 for that year

    worth shopping around for modified insurance, a lot of specialists can sort you out far cheaper than the likes of admiral etc
    give flux a ring, very helpful and quick!
